Among rivals, why does Hugh get so much hate?

I mean, other than barry, who took a lot of heat for a while, more people seem to dislike hugh than almost any other rival, from what I've seen. Nowadays, even barry seems to be decently liked.

Personally, I felt Hugh to be a nice change of pace out of the rivals. He wasn't the "hello friend, lets have a friendly no-stakes battle of friendly friendliness" that we've been plagued with since gen 3 (brandon/may, barry, bianca), nor was he a poor-man's blue ripoff (cheren). He actually had motivation beyond just "i wanna beat you just because" and, story wise, was genre savvy enough to abuse the rival system ( battling each other in order for both to become stronger. Theoretically) to achieve his aims. People complain that he wasn't strong enough, but he was a hell of a lot better than brandon/may who were out of the game before even evolving their starter.

He wasn't great, but I don't see why he's so disliked

I don't know. I haven't played BW2 yet. I love his design though so I have high expectations.

A) Design and B) My sister's Purrloin.... when there's purrloins everywhere.

I mostly think it's the design, but character wise he's one of the better ones imo.

Because of his rage. Over a Purrloin.

Terrible hair, terrible personality (Waa purrloin waa waa), Poor teams, there is nothing not to hate about this guy.






Aside from his theme.

I think he just needs a girlfriend. He's not doing himself any favor raging over a Purrloin though.

He had motivation, sure, but he also cried about it all the time. "TEAM PLASMA I WILL KILL YOU GIVE ME BACK MY SISTER'S PURRLOIN T__________T"

His team was also kinda crappy. It's a bit difficult to take him seriously when he uses an Unfezant and one of the monkeys.

But that said, he did have an awesome design and music, so I can't hate him. His character is just kind of lame.

Cheren = poor man's Blue? He's nothing like Blue.
Blue was cocky, Cheren is confident.
Blue was constantly putting you down, Cheren is your friend and is challenged by you.
